New Infections Fall 42% Week on Week, Says Chief Epidemiologist

ZAGREB, 18 June 2021- Chief epidemiologist Krunoslav Capak said on Friday, last week saw a 42% drop in new coronavirus infections and called on people to be vaccinated despite the good epidemiological situation.

Speaking at a press conference of the national COVID-19 crisis management team, Capak said there were 814 new infections from Monday through Friday last week and 468 this week.

The team said the epidemiological situation was favourable and that Croatia ranked 12th in the EU in terms of 14-day incidence per 100,000 population.

Health Minister Vili Beroš said citizens who planned to be vaccinated in the autumn were making a wrong calculation. Vaccination now, at the start of the summer, prevents a new virus wave, he added. "At the moment we know the vaccine protects for at least eight months, and most probably longer.

Asked how possible manipulation with digital EU certificates would be prevented as of 1 July, for example a person showing someone else's certificate to attend an event, Interior Minister Davor Božinović said it was always possible to identify the certificate bearer and that he was confident that manipulation of that kind would be rare.
